These engravings were inserted as foldouts in various early 18th century editions of Ruysch’s works.

This T-Shirt is for sale, the work was taken from a drawing in a foldout that was scanned and put online of one of the diorama’s, sadly almost all of Ruysch’s work and all his diorama’s have been destroyed by the ravages of time, only a few of these amazing drawings still exist to document this extraordinary work …
